Hello fellow tech, Lately (in my new job) alot of user are still on a workgroup configuration and i have to transfer them on the domain...

Ok, before we start, let me tell you the situation...
- user account already created on the DC
- user was loging localy on the computer (workgroup) and will log onto the domain after the migration
- user use LOTS of software which store personal settings in the regestry and in Doc&setting/[user id] folders.

next, i will join the computer to the "abc" domain and have him log 1 time to generate the profile.

Now what i want to do:
... the most painless and fastest way ...
- i need to copy the old profile to the newly created one including all doc&setting and registry.

If anyone of you also know a tool witch will ease my task, please let me know.
